On Septmeber 24th, a group of students from the MBSA program travelled to Anschutz Medical Campus for CU Pre-Health Day. During the full day experience, students took a campus tour, put their pharmacology skills to the test, attended lectures, and mingled with medical students and professionals. The presentations, geared towards high schoolers, introduced students to the fields of nursing, public health, medical anatomy, dentistry, pharmacy, and physical therapy.
As the 2016-17 school year rapidly moves forward, I am constantly reminded of the extremely important role education has in our society. Toward this end, we, as St. Vrain educators and public servants, value deeply our responsibility to advance the success of our students and our entire community. The ability to adapt, change and continually elevate our public education system is what will ensure that our students and our community are prepared for the challenges we face in a highly competitive global environment.
